The Linksys RE6700 AC1200 Amplify Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender is the latest range extender from Linksys with 802.11ac technology and a plug-in format factor with a built-in power outlet that allows the device to plug into a power outlet while providing an extra outlet for other electronics. With up to 10,000 sq. ft. coverage, it lets you repeat the wireless signal of any access point or router to provide internet connectivity in hard-to-reach areas through a wireless connection on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands. The Linksys RE6700 also offers the option to use it as a wired range extender (Access Point mode) or a wireless range extender (Range Extender mode).
- Easy Setup and Optimal Placement with Spot Finder Technology: Compatible with your smartphone, laptop, or tablet, Linksys Spot Finder Technology provides a unique visual representation of the distance between your AC1200 AMPLIFY and your router. The three-step setup ensures that you position the extender in an optimum location so you can enjoy the maximum Wi-Fi signal–even in the far reaches of your home and outdoors.
- Integrated Power Outlet: Thanks to the integrated power outlet, you can maintain use of the power outlet even when the AC1200 AMPLIFY is plugged in. The integrated power outlet function on your range extender works exactly like a normal electrical outlet, and is not controlled in any way by the range extender.}
- Stream Audio Wirelessly Throughout Your Home: The AC1200 AMPLIFY extender’s 3.5mm audio jack allows you to connect a stereo system or speaker directly to the range extender to stream music wirelessly from your iOS or Android smartphone, tablet, or laptop. With no additional setup needed to connect your wireless device, you can start streaming the moment the AC1200 AMPLIFY is connected to your network. Android users can also stream music with apps that support DLNA digital media sharing.
- Crossband Technology for a Seamless Connection: Innovative Crossband technology allows for the simultaneous use of both bands, rather than relying on one radio band to do all the work. This allows information to be obtained on one band and transmitted on the other, resulting in reduced dropped data packets, faster media transfer speeds, and a stronger, more consistent signal throughout your home.
- Beamforming Provides Top Speeds: Featuring dual wireless bands of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, the AC1200 AMPLIFY can deliver data transfer speeds of up to N300 + AC867 Mbps2 for uninterrupted streaming. Beamforming ensures optimal network performance, directing signals to your device to eliminate interruptions.
- Universally Compatible with Routers: The AC1200 AMPLIFY is compatible with virtually any Wi-Fi router or gateway, with no need to adjust your router’s settings when installing the extender. Simply connect the AC1200 AMPLIFY to your current wireless network to enjoy Internet access on all your devices, from anywhere in your home.
- Gigabit Ethernet Wired Connection: In addition to wireless connectivity, the RE6700 features a Gigabit Ethernet port, which allows you to establish a secure wired connection with speeds up to 1,000 Mbps to a desktop, laptop, or any other device featuring an Ethernet port.
